Other changes for its 5big Network prouct increase the storage systems capacity up to 10TB, and provide compatibility for the iTunes server. The added support enables iTunes users to access the NAS device from the application interface.

By enhancing its backup capabilities users can perform regular or scheduled backups to external devices.
